On one hand I agree that more RAM and a quicker CPU would be great, but also think that the fingerprint reader is more valuable than it may first appear.
Having now owned a UMPC for over a month, logging on is often quite painful if you want to protect your login with a user name and password. This is a slate tablet thing in my opinion. Its great to have the little keyboard that you can tap away at, but if you tend to use larger passwords (which I do) entering a password at every power on by tapping keyboard is quite frustrating. A fingerprint reader would be a great addition and IMHO should be a must for all UMPC designers.
Having said that - I do agree that more memory in particular is a must. I've got 512 Mb in mine and its not enough. I need more.
I have other things I'd like to see improved too many of which will be better in the Vista timeframe, but for now, I'm happy that I've got a form factor that works well for my needs.
